Your Health Can’t Wait…Scheduling Your Procedure NOW Could Save You Money

Oct 20, 2020

There is no reason to delay your care. The Palm Beach Health Network offers safe, high quality care you can count on 24/7.

Palm Beach County, FL – It’s that time of year again. Patients may be close to or have already met their insurance deductibles, and getting in for surgery before December 31 could reduce out-of-pocket expenses by thousands. The hospitals of the Palm Beach Health Network, including Delray Medical Center, Good Samaritan Medical Center, Palm Beach Children’s Hospital, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, St. Mary’s Medical Center and West Boca Medical Center, recognize that life is better without pain, and many patients wonder why they waited so long after having a procedure that helps their overall health.

“We understand that many people have delayed their healthcare due to the pandemic, and we want our community to understand that we have the supplies and processes in place to provide care safely,” said Maggie Gill, chief executive officer of the Palm Beach Health Network. “If you have met your deductible, and you are in need of care that can improve your quality of life, we are making every effort to accommodate our community members before the end of the year so they are able to take advantage of their insurance benefits.”

Safety standards within the Palm Beach Health Network Hospitals are built upon deep clinical expertise as well as continuous incorporation of CDC, CMS and state recommendations. These standards are a rigorous combination of infection prevention processes, training, testing, personal protective equipment and technology. Standards include the following components:

  • Separate pathways for patient care areas with clear signage and protocols
  • Strict physician and staff protocols – daily screening, universal masking and access to PPE
  • Heightened sanitization – enhanced cleaning of surfaces and plenty of hand sanitization stations
  • Access to testing – testing for patients, physicians and staff who require it

“People often think of elective care as optional, but in many cases, it is very necessary to allow someone to live without pain and maintain a healthy lifestyle,” said Chief of Surgery for Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center & Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Scott Norris. “It is vital to get a procedure done now that can help you stay active and focus on your health, rather than delaying care.”
